Healthy Raspbery Coconut Slice

14 Healthy Sweet Treats: Guilt Free and Simple to Make

My children constantly complain that they're not allowed anything sweet. I am a sugar Nazi, I admit! I regularly quote the WHO guidelines on sugar intake at them. Cue eye rolls and sighs from the kids. But, this week's post will make them happy! Healthy sweet treats that are high in fibre, some with added (or hidden!) veggies or nuts for extra nutrients. Gluten free, dairy free and vegan options. They're all easy to make, and they're all super yummy. So what are you waiting for? Get making!

Moist and sweet, cinnamon carrot cookies are great for when a mid afternoon craving hits, and perfect for lunchboxes. They're chewy, gluten free and refined sugar free. There's a cup of carrots in these, too, although I'm not sure that they'll count towards your 5 and 2!

Ginger Watermelon Italian Ice

Oh My Veggies Ginger Watermelon Ice packs a flavour punch! Super yummy, and oh so simple. I cut the sugar back to nothing, and add a couple of spoonfuls of maple syrup instead to make it even healthier.

Guilt Free Chocolate Truffles

Guilt Free Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles? Yes, please! I love this recipe from May I Have That Recipe. Rich chocolate with some nut butter and yoghurt. Couldn't be easier. And if you're catering vegan or dairy free, it's super simple to adapt.

These strawberry oatmeal bars don't just look lovely, they're healthy, too. They're nut free, so great for school lunchboxes. And you can easily make them gluten free and dairy free, as well.

How good does this dark chocolate bark look? The colours are divine, and it's chock full of good stuff with all the superfood additions like nuts, goji berries, pumpkin seeds, and chia all on a dark chocolate base. Simple to make, it's a great one for kids to help out with. And it looks so good, it would make a great present, too.

Sweet Potato Pumpkin Brownie Bites

Sweet Potato Pumpkin Avocado Brownie Bites

I'm a little obsessed with sweet potato. Baked with cinnamon is my thing, but I'm quite willing to try it in chocolate brownies with walnuts, too. I haven't tried these brownie bites yet, but they are absolutely on my list!

Upside Down Pineapple Breakfast Cake 

Upside Down Pineapple Cake

I have to admit that I can't get my head around cake for breakfast. Any other time of the day, sure. But if cake for breakfast is your thing, try this. The sweetness comes from dates and apples, and it's grain free and gluten free, too. Everything about this Upside Down Pineapple Cake sounds awesome, except for the breakfast part! I think I'll save mine for morning tea.

Vegan Chocolate Hobnobs   

Vegan Gluten Free Homemade Chocolate Hobnobs

These chocolate hobnobs from Nadia's Healthy Kitchen have just six ingredients. They're high in fibre, gluten free, dairy free and ever-so-slightly addictive. So crunchy, sweet and more-ish, what more could you ask for?

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

I had to include this chocolate avocado mousse from Nadia Lim. I love her recipes. They're always so simple, and I haven't had a bad one yet. Avocado chocolate mousse might sound a bit weird, but one spoonful and you'll be a convert. So. Damn. Good.
